Are Zestimates accurate?
Zillow is the most popular online real estate information site, with over 70 million unique visitors per month. Zillow provides information on houses that are not on the market as well as active listings of properties for sale.
According to Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff, Zillow Zestimates are “a good starting point” but nationwide Zestimates have a “median error rate” of about +/- 8%. On a $500,000 house, a seller is looking at a $40,000 disparity — which can potentially distort the perceived market value of a listing.
So what’s the takeaway? When buying and selling, keep in mind that Zestimates are no more than starting points in pricing discussions with the real authorities on local real estate values — experienced agents and appraisers.

The Boulder County real estate market is as fast-paced as ever, with homebuyers struggling to find the right house before it gets snapped up.

Hire a fast-moving, tech savvy agent. Not all real estate agents are created equal, and many only work part time. Find an aggressive agent who is dedicated to meeting you in a timely manner. Choose an agent who moves fast and is tech savvy. The real estate industry has changed dramatically over the past few years with the internet and rapidly changing technology. Some agents have adapted well to these changes while others struggle to catch up – be sure to find an agent who uses technology to your advantage.
Prepare to make an aggressive offer. In this competitive market, listing agents often receive several offers very quickly, and it is important to make sure your offer stands out among the rest. A good agent knows the best way to structure a contract to make it as appealing as possible to the home sellers in your market. Talk to your agent to form your offer strategy before you begin your home search.
Buying a house in Boulder County’s fast-paced market can be very stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. By knowing what to expect and utilizing tools and tricks to navigate the market, you can find a great home. If you have further questions or are ready to start your home search, I am here to help!
